Welch Allyn Mobile Vital Signs Monitoring (mVSM) is a flexible, intuitive software-based telehealth solution that communicates with and helps clinicians to monitor patients in their homes. It incorporates FDA cleared, wireless patient monitoring devices and a mobile gateway device (e.g. tablet or smart phone) that transmits physiological data, answers to questions, and messages to healthcare providers.
The mVSM solution is designed to help clinicians prioritize patient care, create opportunities for early intervention and facilitate communication with patients—to enable providers to help patients maintain their quality of life in the home.
The design is simple and straightforward to make incorporation into clinical workflows quick and seamless. With consumer-friendly devices and easy-to-use software, patients are empowered to care for their chronic conditions, which may help reduce unnecessary emergency department trips and hospital readmissions.
The Empirical Foundations of Telemedicine Interventions for
In September 2014, Telemedicine and E-Health featured a systemic review by Dr. Rashid Bashshur and Dr. Gary Shannon from the University of Michigan and the University of Kentucky, respectively, of evidence from studies on the effects of telemedicine in the management of chronic diseases, specifically, congestive heart failure (CHF), stroke, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
According to the review, the benefits of telemedicine generally included reductions in use of service:
In addition, there were often reductions in mortality.
The Welch Allyn mVSM solution is designed to help patients manage their health more effectively, providing monitoring tools, reminders and motivation to change behaviors and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The mVSM solution utilizes familiar, commercially available, Bluetooth® measurement devices and permits the manual entry of readings, allowing the ability to incorporate devices that your patient may already own.
mVSM can help with improved care coordination, post-discharge patient care, home health, chronic disease management and other mHealth usage models.
